Plateau Killing: APC youths call for arrest of Danladi Ciroma, MACBAN Chairman

More reactions have continued to trail the recent killing of over 200 people in some villages in Plateau State, as a group under the aegis of APC Youths Online Forum, Plateau Chapter, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to mandate security operatives to arrest the North Central Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) Danladi Ciroma.
The MACBAN leader had given a lead about the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
The group made the call while addressing journalists in Jos, the State Capital, through its Chairman, Pius Tongmaan.
Tongmaan said, “We call on the Federal Government led by our detrabalized and patriotic President, Muhammadu Buhari, to as a matter of public importance, mandate the security agencies to arrest and question the statements attributed to the North Central Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Danladi Ciroma, who has given a lead about the perpetrators of the attack by referring to the attack as retaliation, where he justified the killings on the basis of over 300 cows allegedly rustled by some natives of Barkin Ladi.
“In-as-much as we don’t condone criminality by acts of cattle rustling, we also do not accept any individual or group that resort to taking laws into their hands by killing and maiming innocent women and children, or the cowardly acts of blocking the federal highways and killing innocent travellers by setting their vehicles ablaze.
“The group condemns in strong terms the hijacking of a peaceful protest by hoodlums which led to the vandalization of public property and smashing of vehicles worth millions of Naira.
“We want to also condemn the activities of the opposition in the State that has been feasting on the attacks to make an issue by spreading propaganda, inciting and hate speeches on social media.
“While we mourn and have a rethink on our coexistence as a people, we want to commiserate with the families of the victims and those displaced from their homes”, Tongmaan said.
